Social Issues Breaking News: U.S. Says Visas From Gay Spouses Will Get Equal Treatment

by Wochit 1:12 mins

TU.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States will immediately begin considering visa applications of gay and lesbian spouses in the same manner as heterosexual couples. Kerry said, "When same-sex couples apply for a visa, the Department of State will consider that application in the same manner that it considers the application of opposite sex spouses." In response to efforts by some Republican lawmakers who are threatening to shut down the government as part of their attempt to stop the health law's implementation, some progressive groups plan to organize their own town hall meetings and stage protests at GOP events, among other things, to tout the law's perks. Others will go door to door to encourage consumers to enter the insurance market. Employers slowed their pace of hiring in July but the jobless rate fell anyway, mixed signals that could make the U.S. Federal Reserve more cautious about drawing down its huge economic stimulus program.
